The ultimate solution would be for case makers to give you a choice of where you mount the ports.
While that's true, having the ports somewhere on the front of the case is definitely more traditional. Even if they were at the front, you would still be able to use the ports, which may not be the case when they're at the top if someone's putting the case under their desk.
It's a small thing over all so it didn't account for much weight in my final score, but it's a nuisance to some either way.
